About the event

The Lost Boys return with a gripping production that tells the story of Frankenstein and also the story of the novel’s creation.

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is probably the greatest horror story ever told. Published exactly 200 years ago and written when she was just 19.

This gripping production interweaves the story of Frankenstein with the story of the novel’s creation. Both stories prove to be equally fascinating.

In 1814, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Mary had scandalised society by eloping together. They were not married. Or at least, not to each other. In the summer of 1816 they escaped to Switzerland. There they joined the “mad, bad and dangerous to know” Lord Byron. They were accompanied by Mary’s half-sister, Claire. Unbeknown to them, Claire was already pregnant. And Lord Byron was the father.

These great writers, Romantics and lovers decided upon a competition – who could write the best horror story? Thus Frankenstein was born. And history was created.
